This restaurant is busy - very busy!! Why because it is cheap and good food. From outside u don't realize just how big it is inside. Dishes range from 8rmb up and u can have 2 courses and be full for 20rmb or about $3....I luv the chilli eggplant and the green beans with chilli and pork mince. Service is good and the kitchen is fast. Very popular with the office workers for lunch. It's loud and full of people enjoying their food. If u are close by this is a great restaurant choice.More

On entering, you are given a printed menu with a pencil, and you tick off the dishes that you want, much as you do in a dim sum eatery. These days, there are English descriptions of the dishes below the Chinese ones, though you need...to have the eyesight of an eagle to read them as the printing is too small. The first dish of minced eggplant was nice, though it was a little weird that it was served on potato chips. The strange combination of the slightly sweet vegetables with the cheesy chips was surprisingly tasty. We also enjoyed the Shanghai noodles with soy sauce, as well as their signature Grandma's chicken. While delicious, the bird itself was quite small and bony, and came with both feet as well as head and bill. The sautéed vermicelli was spicy, as we liked it, but was unfortunately too lumpy and dry, as the strands were mostly stuck together. We also ordered the crispy duck, which came on a metal platter and with three rather thick pancakes. We tried a few pieces of the duck but did not really enjoy it - the skin was not as crispy as we liked it to be, the bird was bony, and the cumin taste was quite strong. We saw many tables ordering the dish and tucking into it though. Pricewise, it is relatively cheap and the portions are big as well. No matter what day we turn up, there is always a crowd. In fact, a colleague has had to visit in the morning just to take a number for a table at dinner time. She says that there is a newer branch at IAPM Mall in Hua Hai Lu, located opposite the Ippuddo restaurant, where the queues are not as long, so we might pop by there soon.More

On our last day of a 4-day trip in Shanghai, we decided to stop by this restaurant for Hangzhou cuisine. We made a bad choice. The service was very average - they forgot one of our dishes which they did not bring out until almost...an hour after we started the meal. The food was greasy, and simply did not taste right. For example, I ordered "腌笃鲜“ which is essentially soup with ham, sliced bamboo shoots and beancurd sheets - the soup was very oily, and the bamboo shoots tasted like plastic. They didn't have any photos with the menu (nor an English menu) so I ordered some chef's special dishes none of which turned out great. We feel bad that we wasted our time in going to this restaurant while there are plenty of other choices for Hangzhou food in Shanghai.More

Hongkou
History oozes out of every fiber of the city, but
Hongkou is a particularly notable neighborhood.
Shanghai was a safe haven for about 20,000 Jews during
the Second World War, and traces of this heritage can
still be found in buildings and park monuments.
Historic foreign relations aside, this neighborhood
throws you into traditional Shanghainese life without
taking you too far away from the city center. Some of
